AK74 is an assault rifle in CrossFire.


The AK74 is an assault rifle developed in the early 1970s, by Russian designer Mikhail Kalashnikov as the replacement for the earlier AKM.

This weapon features several important design improvements, that were primarily the result of converting the rifle to the intermediate-caliber high velocity 5.45×39mm cartridge.


This weapon can be considered as an alternative for rookie players who wanted a similar rifle like the AK47. This weapon is much easier to control, also with reduced recoil, but it deals lower damage and slightly slower firespeed than the AK47 (except CF Vietnam).

This weapon can hold up to 30 rounds per magazine.

  • The AK74 is the one of few weapons that receive the new animations, but only some regions that update receive the new animations.
  • The gas-block of the AK74's model was from the AK47, not from the AK74.
  • The Color of the Magazine that AK74 uses in game is an Current "True Black" Magazine used by an Modernized Version of AK74 (Known as the AK74MN) and its Bulgarian Variants of AK74 Known as the "Circle 10" Magazines made by Arsenal Bulgaria, and the Real life Magazine color of the AK74 is The Russian "Bakelite Orange" magazine manufactured by Tula Arms Plant and Izhmash but its now surplus collectibles hence Bakelite magazines are no longer manufactured, but some collectors nicknamed this magazines as "Russian Izzy magazine" or simply "Bakelite magazine"
  • Unlike AK47 and its variants (except Scope (and its variants), Phoenix (temporary), Tournament, Buster (and its variants), AK74 hasn't been fixed and have original stats in CF Vietnam, so it is good for players want to play an alternative version of AK that isn't nerfed for free, even the damage has been reduced, as well.
